Sent you a PM.  Thatís nice to hear that you used it for film nights at Uni. Gives me a warm feeling that we did something positive.

I agree some absolute class films have been released lately for free. I'm not rushing to buy the latest Reel Rock 14, for example.

The other sections are pretty weak but Iíve watched The Nose speed record feature a few times already. Happy to support Reel Rock in general due to the overall high quality of what they produce and the serious amount of hours they must put in.

Worth it then?

For the nose speed bit yes. The bit where they both take a wipper, then sit on top mulling over the madness of it all is absolutely riveting.

And watching honnold charging up the upper section placing a piece every rope length,with Caldwell in hot pursuit. The phrase world class is probably used too often, but that epitomises it I think.

This was ace!

Something about seeing Dave Graham in V10s made me happy and nostalgic.

Thanks for posting that  :2thumbsup: :2thumbsup: :2thumbsup: :2thumbsup:

Not seen that for Donkeys. Hopefully the old flicks all end up online.

More from the gnarly check dude. This time he decides a belayer is unnecessary as he attempts the FA of a crumbling pile of  sand.

Hope they stick it on YouTube or something after for those of us without FB accounts!

You can still access a Facebook Live app with an Amazon fire stick and i think some smart TVs without an account.

Such a great film, pads look woefully inadequate by modern standards.

Has this made it here already? Full length film of the Huber brothers having a right fight at Mt Asgard freeing the Bavarian Direct while complaining of being too old. Great film i thought. The slow pacing really helps set the atmosphere and the dynamics between the brothers. Some quality climbing as well

I posted it a little bit back but I don't think it got any reaction so happy to see it posted it again - I thought the relationship between the brothers was fascinating.

I thought it was great, and cool to see the links between the various teams that have done it too.

One gripe though, I hate it when expedition films like this don't include the film crew or any other support in any of the story. The team dynamic would have actually been very different to the one portrayed on film if there were any other people there (and credits suggest there was at least a camera man I think).  And when they get off the boat to start the big approach its suggested that it's just them and their backpacks but you then see them at base camp with big tents, cooking gear, haul bags, porta-ledges etc. They sure as hell didnt have all that on their backs when they were filming the big approach, so theirs part of the story that isn't shown.

It doesn't detract at all from what they achieved, of course.

Another similar gripe is when films of big wall first ascents totally ignore to mention that they aided the pitches first and yet miraculously have someone with a camera hanging from a rope above them when they're climbing.

Huber film not guilty  of this though, which was nice (and rare) to see.

Great film and not totally up on big walling, but do they get to claim it as they didnít do the climb in one push? I know they did all the pitches clean between them on the trip but is that legit?

I thought it was great. It also confirmed everything I'd heard about Thomas!

If I recall correctly they discussed this would be a "team free" ascent; no single person freeing all the pitches. Which they said didn't count when Todd Skinner and Paul Piana freed The Salathe!

More Hubers, this time on Eternal Flame:
